The nose contains a rich aroma of blueberries, fruit bread and spices. Densely packed on the palate. Give it a little air to let it play out its full fruit and complexity. Flavors of dark, ripe berries soon emerge.

A "cool" grenade - awarded with 4.5 Platter stars and 95 Wine Spectator points!

The Elevation 393 from winemaker David Trafford from Stellenbosch presents itself deep red to purple in the glass. The 15% vol. is nicely hidden under chocolate and tobacco aromas with herbs and black currant coming on the scene with the second sip. Give it a little air to let it play out its full fruit and complexity.

If you are expecting a South African fruit bomb with oak makeup you are wrong. The De Trafford Elevation 393 is a very balanced and coherent wine in which the individual components such as fruit, body, minerality are in harmonious balance - which is also supported by a good acid structure. Made from 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot and 13% Shiraz.

Other information from De Trafford: bottles produced: 3444, of which 240 bottles for Germany.

Closure: Natural cork - Aging: 22 months barrique, unfiltered, hand-pressed grapes, spontaneously fermented.
